IREM members are eligible to contribute to the REALTOR Political Action Committee (RPAC) due to IREM being an affiliate of the National Association of REALTORS. Since 1969 RPAC has been promoting the election of pro-REALTOR candidates across the United States. During the last federal election cycle alone, RPAC contributed over $12 million to pro-REALTOR candidates to Congress, making it the number one trade association political action committee in the nation. What's just as important, RPAC is not only powerful, but also bipartisan. Political party is not a criteria–RPAC supports candidates who support REALTORS.
On the national level, RPAC gives money to those in Congress who both understand and support REALTOR issues. We look to build the future by putting RPAC dollars in places that will help advance the interests of Real Estate professionals. RPAC is the only political group in the country organized for REALTORS, run by REALTORS and exists solely to further issues important to REALTORS. Think of your RPAC contribution as an investment. The best investment you'll ever make in your business and yourself. RPAC is your best insurance against poorly designed small business and commercial real estate legislation. If you're not giving your fair share to RPAC, you're not doing all you can to better your profession, your business, and yourself.
This political muscle needs your help to keep it competitive and effective. Always remember - RPAC is your best investment in preserving the right to own real estate and protecting our industry.
